Do you think, having a gate will prevent a thief from entering into your premises? If they are determined, nothing can stop them.

From the pics, it seems there is not enough space infront of the house and having a wall and a gate will make it more congested. This is a common scenario in a gated community and most of them are usually designed w/o any compound wall, at most they will have a ~2ft ht picket fencing. It depends on the priority of the individual. I agree , a wall and a gate gives more privacy but at the cost of space. I would have agreed if the house has enough space at the front.

Bollards are primarily used to restrict the entry of a car into an area, and not necessarily for security of a vehicle parked inside. A common application is at hotels where the bollards go down only after your car has been screened by the security staff.
It depends on the requirement, but doesnt mean that it cannot be used for other purposes. I have seen many are using it successfully (eg 2 for a single car, one at the front and another at the back and connected to the home security system)

I already have a sliding gate, albeit one that is manually operated.

The problem I have with the sliding gate is that Bangalore being a dusty city, all sorts of gunk affixes itself onto the stationery bottom guide rail. It also doesn't help that cars driving over the bottom rail frequently deposit all kinds of debris on it. However I have seen online that there are designs where the guide rail can be on top or midway, the latter being a very interesting design as it results in a floating gate.

As far as rats are concerned, I have seen them frequently run over low walls. However in my experience they usually come in through broken sewer pipes or dry toilets, so I usually make sure that doesn't happen. A few months ago we went on vacation and when we returned, we found that rats had chewed up the kitchen cabinet under the sink since that outlet was dry as no one had used it for a week.

Having said that, I am very interested in the open up type of garage door design that is very common in the US. The downside of this design is that I will need to construct an additional small gate for people to go in and out.

If anyone has received any quotes for automated gates and could place them on this thread, that would be really helpful.

Usually the outlet should have a water trap to prevent any cockroaches or rats from entering into and this also blocks the smell from the drain pipe.

You are right, I didn't think about this. There is a water trap, but in between the sink and the water trap I have a dry servants toilet that is currently closed off and I presume some rats have made a colony there.

There will be individual water traps for each entry made to the drain pipe.

Another kind of trap which is embedded in the floor b/n the sink and drain pipe (Floor Traps).



BTW, got a sample image of Manual bollards being used in a residential house.

That looks like an attractive price, as opposed to the initial 5L quote you mentioned. What material was the gates in the earlier quote - 22K gold plated?

Hi Chetan,

How has your experience being with this door automation? How much does the yearly maintainence cost you? I am also based out of Pune and would like to explore this for my society. My take is that we pay close to 22K per month for keeping watchmen who are more or less useless so we are thinking of some sort of automation at one time cost and save some money for the society!

Would appreciate your response on this. I can PM you my number.

regards,

Saumitra
